Birthday #OOTD

Today is officially my 16th birthday and I am also 2 more years from turning into an adult. Sadly I have not received a car, not even close to getting my permit, and no big party at all (more like a dinner with a few friends) I had a fun time this morning with a little shopping spree.

I will hopefully do a haul later on all the items that I have bought, I would like to share an outfit that I wore for the beginning part of my birthday.

Anxiety and Panic Attacks

I have received a few or less comments (more like one) on my Surviving the First Day of School post, about how I should have more real life or advice columns. As I could not think of anything going on school wise, I thought of how I had something that kind of affects some others.

I never fully understood the true meaning of ‘anxiety’ or ‘panic attacks’ but they are truly one of the most unpleasant feelings. I have been dealing with these for I do not know how long, but it seems like a very long time. I recently started noticing it ever since my 7th Grade Science Fair and I could not breath the whole time to school and as soon as I stepped into the building, I called my mom to pick me up since I was crying hysterically along with that I could not breath and I was overwhelmed.

To me, I get this feeling of pressure against my chest which makes me feel uncomfortable and I literally can not breath. It would either last a few minutes or it could go on for a very long time. I usually experience with them by over thinking (which I try not to do and is kind of a bad thing) or worrying about something that would potentially happen or it would randomly just happen.

Yes, many people do experience panic attacks but they most likely get over them, while others, including me have been suffering from them. Just a few days ago, I had came to school not being able to breath and as soon I was picked up, I felt the very same but it seemed worse as that I also had a cold and my nose was stuffy so that made it worse. My mom (who also suffers with it also) told me that I could always go to ER if I would like, but that would just freak me out more.

Panic attacks to me are very serious and sometimes I would cry because of the feeling that it had caused me. Sadly I get them sometimes before school, which is not a good thing because I have to be there for the next 2 or so years. Also this is why I am pretty much lazy, because whenever I do something it will spark it and that is why I am afraid to go to my dance classes sometimes because it hurts a little. I stay in my house most weekends doing nothing because I cannot go outside and face my fear of getting a panic attack. I cannot even text my close friends and I will never understand how that affects me in that way. I always feel like that there is a rock against my chest with water filling it up and I am scared.

But I have found other ways to avoid getting panic attacks.

  1. Exercise, it helps sometimes and it is a great way to stay fit. It will also lessen the frequency.
  2. Go against it and do something adventurous even if you get a panic attack.
  3. Keep breathing, try as hard as you can even if it hurts.
  4. Don’t be scared, do not overthink. Put a reminder in your phone not to overthink at all.
  5. Get a self-help book or talk to someone about and maybe they will help you.

I really appreciate that you guys are reading this. I really want to help you all with anything that has been bothering you and panic attacks have been bothering me lately so I may not include a lot as I could, I hope you check our my favorite fashion blogger/YouTuber Zoella (click on her name) who also has both a video and a post with anxiety and panic attacks advice which I know will be helpful.

If you need advice for anything, just tweet me, instagram me, or leave a comment and I will try my best to help.

Surviving the First Day of School

I do not own this photo

(Please don’t be offended by my simile, it was kind of a joke)

If you aren’t close to me and haven’t heard my opinion of school well… High School is like the Hunger Games, where we are all forced to be there to torture each other until we are pretty much mentally dead. But school can be exciting in some ways other than my Hunger Games example, we can plan what we want for the future for whatever you plan to be or do in life, no matter what it was.

But that is was more into the future then we believe but now this is what we all have been waiting for… the first day of school. No one is excited for school and no one wants to be there earlier than the sun has peaked over the horizon, but sadly that is the way of life.

I have had so many first days, including that this will be my 6th school in the past 15 years, not including those years when I was in diapers, so I have had trouble on the first day which I know will change once I help you with my tips to stay alert during this time where everything will get back into order.

I know I am somewhat excited to not sit around all day and do nothing, as much as I love to do that, but that is all going to change drastically. So lets go on to what to do on the first day you get back!

  1. Make sure you get a good nights sleep, as much makeup can disguise those bags under your eyes in the morning, you don’t want to be falling asleep in the class with a very hard teacher.
  2. Make sure you have everything laid out, your backpack, lunch, supplies, outfit (or in my case a uniform) so you don’t miss a thing which is one of the worst things to deal with. Also make sure you leave your house as soon as possible because last year I learned (almost being a little late) that when everyone goes back to school, that means EVERYONE, so be prepared for the traffic.
  3. Be on top of everything. Make sure you got all the assignments for each class and even write down the little details so you won’t fail it.
  4. Make friends. I was always the shy, awkward person (still kind of am) so try to get a boost of confidence and meet someone new. Its always nice to know someone and its okay if it isn’t the whole school or the popular people. I learned that they don’t have to be your friend all year because they usually find others, so if they so make some other friends. I have found my great friends those who aren’t that popular and a little bit quirky, but they are awesome because I really like people who are different from others. And also you don’t always have to have a friend in each other your classes, I didn’t and I survived, kind of.
  5. Don’t bully each other, or try to ignore the bully. Pretty much everyone I have known has been effected by a bully, including me. I will never understand why people bully each other out loud instead of keeping it to yourself. Sometimes people don’t need to speak their opinions because if you said something bad about someone would you like that to be said towards you? We are all having a hard time so don’t make it hard and just because you say something that you think is meaningless doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt the person. You can get out of the person’s life all you want but they can’t change who they are, so don’t really force them to do anything harmful in anyway.
  6. Lockers are like the trickiest thing like to have ever exist but we have to learn to love them. They keep everything of yours in a place, so create the space your own. Make sure you don’t pen you locker, it may be a good trick to use in a hurry so you don’t have to use a combination, but make sure all your books are there because a few of mine were stolen last year. I will never understand why someone would want a Algebra 1 Textbook!
  7. Get involved! Get involved with the drama club, glee club, band, art club and maybe even football! Its a great way to make friends and be able to find who you are and who you want to be as a person.
  8. Be on top of everything! I mean school work wise. I am such a procrastinator when it comes to homework (like hello Tumblr and YouTube exist). Since I have so many activities after school this year, I need to get everything done and stay on track if I want to get anywhere in life.
  9. Sadly high school isn’t High School Musical so a heads up, please do not jump on top of cafeteria tables or burst out into song in a middle of a test as much as you want to. You could possibly go to detention.
  10. And just have fun! I know high school seems scary when you start, I am starting my sophomore year and its still scary for me, but its different for everyone. You can love it or hate it. Just hang out with friends, go to dances (most likely Homecoming), go to football games, do anything you have to do to have a good time and make sure its legal.

And for those of you have succeeded in reading all of that, I congratulate you and if you haven’t started already, I wish you a nice first day of school.

Love,
Elyse

P.S. If you and/or your friend(s) are scared for the first day, feel free to share this with them or on twitter, or facebook or what other social website you like!

Back to School Must Haves Uniform Edition

The first day of school is the first day for everything. It is like New Years Eve without all the fireworks and the snow. Sadly it is not that time of year and the summer is coming to end (cue emoticon with tears). The first day of school means everything, what you wear (from what I hear from a JCPenney commercial) kind of defines your whole year (or where you sit at lunch but that doesn’t really matter to me).

So the beginning of the school year is important because its a new everything, new kids, new teachers, new things to try and a brand new you. Ever since I have started this blog during my freshmen year, I have grown as a person for who I am and fashion and beauty wise. So this sophomore year, everything I do and wear will reflect on how much I am more confident on who I am (other than hiding my face with make up which doesn’t really matter, I guess).

I have been going to a private school for the past 4 years and of course I wear a uniform so the only time I can show who I am as a human being is my locker, my backpack and on dress down day (which isn’t that often). So as this year comes closer I am getting ready to show off some item that I believe are a must have.

LUSH Product Review

I have been wanting this lip scrub from LUSH for a while now and I haven’t found it until today when me and a few of my friends went shopping at the mall!

My friend Jordan (whereismytonyaward.wordpress.com) has like a little of obsession with the store, he has bought way too many of their products so I decided to try one!

Before I had gotten it, I had read the reviews on the website which were mixed so I tried it out myself. I don’t exactly know what a scrub is but this product is used to scrub off the dead skin upon your lips before using any lipstick or lip gloss. There is no water to this unless you consider your saliva because all you need to wash it off is to lick your lips clean. My lips feel nice afterwards and there is a nice bubble gum taste in your mouth. I find the surface of the scrub a little bit grainy like sand or hard candy but thank God it is not hard on my lips!

Crazy Fashion

I know I am currently obsessed with Pinterest and other social media, which is kind of getting a little out of hand. So as I have been scrolling and going through pictures, I have spotted some pretty weird things that I think is kind of outrageous but definitely something that I ‘might’ enjoy wearing.

With different styles of tights, I believe these are so cool yet weird at the same time! Its like some masterpiece at an art museum from some mentally disturbed artist, which I would probably is someone who needs a big hug!

I’ve had a friend try something like this on before, its not comfortable but they are cute!.

Lets just say there is more that I would like to add but think I’ll be going on forever and ever! And Lady Gaga will obviously need a whole 10 posts or so about her outfits.
